I have an otherwise excellent copy of a John Klemmer Direct-to-Disk recording, that is warped like a potato chip about 3/8". Even with my record clamp, it is a nightmare. I can track it, but at the outermost groove, at the lead-in, it sometimes causes the stylus to leave the record slightly, but it doesn't skip. Once it gets in about 1/8" into the record, it plays well, even though the arm looks like a small boat riding the waves of the ocean in a storm. I keep this record, because it has some of the most excellent recording quality I've heard, and it is expensive to get another copy. I don't play it often, but sometimes I just get in the mood to hear it. This is the worst one I have encountered that I even tried to play.
